Steve Huff reflects on 40 years in the trades—and his experience in selling his business to his General Manager, Nick Martin.

Steve Huff, along with his wife Donna, recently sold their family business of 40 years, Steve Huff Plumbing. At SGI, we talk to contractors about achieving their goals and dreams. The ultimate goal for many is to be able to sell your business and live an amazingly comfortable life. That’s what Steve and Donna have done. Steve shares how they turned their struggling business around in the early 2000’s. And he shares his personal experience about selling his business to his general manager, Nick Martin.
